PlayStation-exclusive MLB The Show coming to other consoles

PlayStation-exclusive MLB The Show coming to other consoles

It's a rather curious day for the Sony PlayStation and its fans. With the PS5 coming soon, you'd think the company would emphasize the platform's superiority and focus on exclusives that capitalize on that. Instead, Sony has opened its doors to Minecraft, finally ending one of the most recent controversies surrounding its snub of other consoles. And as if that weren't enough, it seems that Sony is also promising that one of the longest-running PlayStation exclusives will finally be making its way to other consoles starting 2021.

PlayStation Controller patents are both innovative and ridiculous

PlayStation Controller patents are both innovative and ridiculous

The PlayStation 5 is coming really soon and yet there's still some uncertainty as to what it would look like. The "V" shaped console that was revealed in a patent and a subsequent photo may be interesting but there's also a slim chance that this PS5 was only meant to be seen and used by developers.

While rumors claim that the PS5 controller won't differ that much from its predecessor, at least two patents from Sony show how the company had ideas that could make the input device a lot more interesting.

Owners of the Xperia 1 and Xperia 5 flagships have been pleasantly surprised by notifications telling them an update is available.

Don’t expect a PS Vita successor anytime soon

Don’t expect a PS Vita successor anytime soon

Ever since the launch of the Game Boy in the 1980s, Nintendo has been a dominant force in the world of handheld gaming. A number of companies tried to challenge that dominance, and the one that best gave Nintendo a run for its money was likely Sony with the PSP and its follow up, the PS Vita. Earlier this year, Sony discontinued the final remaining PS Vita SKUs with no concrete plans for any kind of follow up.

PlayStation 5 dev kits are more interesting than the final design

PlayStation 5 dev kits are more interesting than the final design

Back in the early days of gaming consoles, each box, if you could really call them a box, exuded some personality with a unique and almost eccentric design. Perhaps due to the changing aesthetic tastes of the gaming market, that design trend stopped after the first Xbox and PlayStation consoles. Leaked patents almost suggested that the PlayStation 5 could once again sport a rather unorthodox form, something confirmed by this latest leaked photo. Sadly, the photo is reportedly that of a dev kit, which doesn't bode well for what the PS5 will actual actually look like.
